Fences, Gates, and Bridges is an instructional guide to the best methods of building an incredible variety of these devices for all regions and weather conditions. Written in 1900, this book is a functional pocket manual as well as a testament to American ingenuity, born out of necessity and practicality.
The section on fences boasts an impressive medley of materials and designs, including the zigzag fence, the cheap and portable barbed-wire fence, and a sample of sod and stone fences.
And what is a fence without a gate? The second segment of the book includes instruction on the making and setting of posts, as well as the construction and installation of swinging gates, sliding gates, pulley gates, and more.
The third and final section consists of information on a number of bridges, depicting a wide selection of them designed for crossing gullies and culverts, as well as ornamental bridges for gardens and walkways.
